    Pocket Mode

    I've used it on a few of my devices since it came out. I found it helpful to avoid my phone thinking my thigh or butt depending on which pocket it was in was trying to activate the screen and do whatever. With it on if my hand blocks a camera or something due to the angle it wont let me use...

    12TB Seagate IronWolf - $229 Amazon S&S

    Damn. I need 3 more of these to upgrade the second array in my NAS. Sadly not in the budget right now.

    Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020

    Nice, been several updates since I last tried because it got so bad. Was fun at launch, buggy but quite enjoyable.

    Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020

    I had weird issues before with an out of date driver. Thankfully its only hosed me once. This update does have some issues as my game will either hard crash to the desktop, or at some point my FPS will tank to 1 - 4 FPS. Really blows when that happens on final approach during a multi hour...

    Review the game you finished recently.

    Black Mesa: Played earthbound when they released it. Just went through to play Zen. Game is still so much better than the original HL. Some of the voice acting could be better but great sound and more cohesive story and guidance. A few bugs and minor issues but a great way to build into the...

    Pixel 6 / Pixel 6 Pro / Pixel 6a

    Same, her 3a is working but getting sluggish and having some issues. May do the 6a if there is face unlock / a working fingerprint sensor. Otherwise maybe the S22 FE or something like that in the fall.

    Evil Dead based on Bruce Campbell Horror films

    That is depressing as I had higher hopes for this and avoided spoilers.

    Story is more together than Valve was able to make it back in the original. They did an amazing job with it. Some bits I don't love on Earthbound and Zen levels but so much fun.

    F1 2022

    My nephew pre ordered this so I may pick it up to play with him. Enjoying Dirt Rally 2 when we get the time to mess about in that but he's more into the F1 stuff and with VR this may be a lot of fun... but hard to pick between VR and ultrawide lol.

    Myth Force

    Hmm, reminds me of Blade & Sorcery, looks like it could be fun.

    Which laptop brands are best?

    I've had HP, Microsoft Surface, Acer, Asus and Lenovo. Each one within their own model was a good machine. Each manufacturer makes some crap and each seems to have some good things. Just depends on what fits the bill and your usage when buying.

    Anyone else fed up with PC gaming?

    I used to rotate on a similar cycle of PC every 6 to 8 depending on how advancements have gone and GPU's between but Covid and current prices have shot that in the face lol. Thankfully I have good parts that I'm hoping will keep going for a few more years to either bring some value back into...

    Will you upgrade to the S22 ultra?

    Was a good upgrade, one I wouldnt have done if the 5T's VOLTE radio didnt have issues with bluetooth lol. I have a lot I want to spend money on as well in the same boat with a million wants and only a million penny's :( But for me I have no need for anything above the regular 22 as the +...

    Back 4 Blood from Turtle Rock Studios

    Sounds a lot like what happened to Evolve which is why I did not buy this. Sucks they still cant keep things going.

    Will you upgrade to the S22 ultra?

    All comes down to how everyone uses the device and what they want out of it. For you no, certainly not worth it. I too have no need for the ultra and am loving the regular S22 coming from my OnePlus 5T. I like to use my SLR for photography when possible but I cant always have it on me and for...

    Anyone else fed up with PC gaming?

    I liked the IDEA of steam, just not how it was implemented early on. From a developer stand point I get that they needed to get it out to start getting real data to drive improvements but it was a huge shift from the individual games and WAN servers. I hung onto those until they died :( Steam...

    Anyone else fed up with PC gaming?

    Going back to the monitor comments and treating the PC like a console... I have no real display issues and I use NV Surround with triple screens. Some games like it some dont. Easy enough to set them to run on the native resolution of one monitor or edgeless windowed. If I am playing VR I...

    Terrible HDD packaging from Newegg - where should I buy drives?

    I've had a few come like that from Newegg in years past. I buy from Amazon, but not random sellers, WD, Seagate directly. They come properly packaged thus far and I've had no concerns.

    What game have you put the most time into?

    Hmm I would have to say TFC, CS Beta through 1.5, Warcraft III version of DOTA, Guild Wars 1 and 2 and than DOTA 2. I would have put TF2 in there but noticed GTA V Online has now surpassed that lol. Most of the RTS ones I enjoyed for a good while but did not just play play play them. Delta...

    Will you upgrade to the S22 ultra?

    There are a few ways to take that though. Those who continually upgrade to the latest often are trading in or selling their prior devices like a lease program. Those phones fuel a second hand market for people who want a solid phone but cant buy the latest and greatest and may not trust the...

    Star Citizen - media blowout, Chris Robert's new game

    For the past few years 90% of the posts in here are from those who are not thrilled with the offerings, devs, "progress" or anything related to it and must continually say so every time a post is made. More so if it is a positive comment. Just ignore em. If you had fun enjoy!

    So, am I the only one that AMD treats like a criminal when requesting an RMA?

    Small silver lining to working at Comp USA was working returns and opening the boxes to match serial numbers and such and getting to ask the customer why I am holding an old Dlink vs the Linksys 54G router this box was for lol. Unless the GM was in... He would take anything back to keep people...

    I mainly like the headphone jack so I can charge, tether, transfer data and switch from my laptop to my phone without having to take my headphones off or mess with anything. While I know there are USB charge + 3.5 adapters annoyance at lugging more around. I did buy some decent wireless ones...

    Do Lan Parties happen any more?

    I loved arriving at Quake con just in time for steam to drop their typical required update for games to work properly. And we had to update as half the place would have pulled it from the hotel network, or brought it with them if they did not arrive at the start of the event.

    How long do keyboards last?

    I used membranes at work for a while as sharing nasty crappy Dell keyboards was not fun... went through them every 1 to 2 years. Did replace with a Corsair K90 that never failed me in the 4 or 5 I used it. I Bought the G15 when it released and used it solid until I bought the 910 Spark when...

    Battlefield 2042

    I get the real life thing. I only got about an hour to 90 minutes in the beta but from the hype I was very interested. BF2 was a turd for me coming from 1942 and Desert Combat, 1 was interesting but not very fun from the beta. The noise and common complaints from more fans of 2042 are what...

    If only people would hold off on their pre orders, use the performance of the early access events / final beta's and make their purchase decisions based upon reality EA would have a reason to improve. But.......
